Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

I would use one of those Kritter Keepers. Medium-Sized should Work.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I have a .5g . Actually right now my java fern is surviving in it with seachem :/ But I don't have anything with my bettas so if they need aq salt or something I just put it in their normal tank minus any plants.

I use a 10 gallon kit and keep it bare bottomed.

I just got finished setting it up as a quarantine tank for 10 new fishies bought this morning :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

i always keep my fish in clean bacteria free tanks :) they don't share the same tank, so it is simpler for me to care because none of the other's gets infected XP i used to have a 5 gallon though, when i had a sorority

If this is for other species of fish. I would use a 10 gallon storage container, or tank, withs a cycled filter, to keep it cycled. Have it running on your main tank at all times

Thanks guys. The only fish I have are rasboras, nerite snails, guppies and bettas. What size would be suitable for those fish?

Depends on how many but saying that you are Quarentining them individually. I would say a 10 gallon storage container or tank cycled with many water changes for 6 harlequin rasboras. A 1 gallon for 1 large Nerite snail. Or 3 small snails, a 5 gallon for a trio of guppies, and a 1 gallon for one Betta

One of my guppies has some sort of recurring fin-rot. It'd just be for 1.

The rasboras are lamb-chops. Smaller.
